Body Of Missing Fisherman Found In Flaming Gorge
MANILA, Utah (AP) — Authorities have recovered the body of a missing Wyoming fisherman whose empty boat was found partially underwater in Flaming Gorge Reservoir.
Deputies from Daggett County, Utah, say the body of 46-year-old Danny Angelo Durante was discovered Thursday night about 100 feet underwater and about 100 feet away from his boat. Durante’s body was pulled from the water about 11 p.m.
The Jackson man’s boat was reported Sunday evening in the Jug Hollow area. It presumably capsized amid high winds and treacherous waters at the reservoir.
Deputies from Daggett and Summit counties in Utah and Sweetwater County in Wyoming assisted in the search. The body was found with sonar operated by the Utah Department of Public Safety’s dive team.
